Little Girl


Dear Little Girl,
It's time we have a serious conversation. Special is what you are and strong is what you'll become. Little girl, it's okay to cry and show emotion. The hell you're going through now will build character and strength later in life. You know hurt and pain all too well. Your mind will play tricks on you and make you feel less than, but know deep down you're worthy.

You'll hide your true feelings by drowning yourself in work and motherhood because this is a conversation you avoided for years. Little girl, you'll experience abusive relationships with  narcissist that prey on your bruised and battered love wounds. They'll smell it a mile away. You'll hold on to false hope and they'll give you just enough to hang onto. Your men of choice find pleasure in building you up only to watch you fall apart. This is one of the toughest battles you'll endure but you're strong enough without a doubt to break the cycle.

The cycle will cause you to feel as if you're losing it at times but little girl, please hold on. They'll call you crazy and say you're over reacting but you're justified in your actions because they'll push you to that point. Little girl, becoming complacent in mentally abusive relationships is dangerous. Get out and have the courage to move on. Don't forget what you're made of and what you deserve. Be strong in your period of waiting. Stop rescuing others and save yourself. Dear little girl, it will all be okay. You're stronger than you think. Keep fighting.

Why Are You Single?

As I'm sitting at work chatting with coworkers about life, I get asked the dreadful question. Breezy, why are you single? I wish I had some profound text book answer for them or hell, five dollars for every time I was asked by people in general. The answer is simple. I just wont settle! Being a single mother dating in 2018 is as complicated as trying to read Mike Tysons lips with your tv muted.   Although I’ve struggled with self-image in the past, I’m in a much better place mentally and physically and know my worth. That alone is a powerful weapon. I often look at my friends and family members and think to myself….am I really the only one who doesn’t have a significant other? When will it be my season? As quickly as those thoughts creep into my head I try to shake them away with positive affirmations. See, I grew up in the church and understand that there’s power of life and death in the tongue. My prayers for my future husband are very detailed and I know deep down, the ma

Cloudy With A Chance of Broke

This glass of Walmart wine is giving me life right now. Bougie on a budget is my lifestyle. Since all the water shelves are cleared at Walmart, I settled on this sweet little Moscato. Funny how southerners go straight for bread and water when a storm is approaching. When my son and I lived in Colorado and was expected to get snowed in; sadly all I stocked up on were movies and food. It was nice to be snowed in spending time with the most important person in my life for a day or two. Good times. “Three pairs of underwear for myself…three pairs of underwear for Bentley” I mumbled as I folded our undergarments and placed them in our black rolling suitcase. “Mama, the water is too hot” Bentley yells from the shower across the hall. This is only his tenth time interrupting me within the last five minutes. Why do kids wait until you’re doing something important to need you? Like man, could you wait at least 2 minutes while I get my thoughts together and pack our entire life in a suitcase f

If This Is It...

As I begin to think about the future, there’s so much uncertainty. Of course I have tons of dreams and goals and through blood, sweat and tears I’ll do my very best to accomplish them. I was taught that exercising faith is a must in life. I’ve always had a problem living in the moment so I’d like to take a second and do just that. Like the gospel song says “Lord if I ten thousand tongues, I could not praise you for what you’ve done.” Even though some days are a struggle and I have no clue how I’ll make it to the next, I’m grateful for the things I have. My son’s in good health and I’ve made a home for him that’s   filled with love. All of his jeans are a husky size so that reminds me that I’m able to provide him with meals daily. He’s the only child so he gets what he wants for the most part. I’m grateful I’m able to not only give him the things he needs but the things he wants as well. When I come home and flip the light switch; my little townhome lights up and I’m grateful f
